Shangri-la Sun Hat Week Three

Posted on July 24, 2017 by Kathy Lashley | 0 Comments

Whew!  You've gotten your yarn, wire and joiners and watched the video tutorial so now it's time to start crocheting right?  I really can't wait to start watching everyone showing off their projects in the Furls Facebook group.  It's always lots of fun to see all the different colors of yarns everyone uses to bring out their personality.

 

 This week we will work on the body of the sun hat together.  I've given you three different hat sizes, so I'm sure you can find a size that fits you.  

One thing you may want to keep in mind is if you want the hat to "fit loosely" that you may want to try it on as you go.  Some of you may like the way a traditional crochet hat fits snuggly, but I like for these hats to have a loose fit myself.

Supplies:

1.  Yarn – Omega Sinfonia, #2 Sport Weight, 100% mercerized cotton, 218 yards, 100 grams, 1 skein of each colorway:  #861 Sand and #869 Gold
2.  Hook – Furls Odyssey E/3.5mm, F/3.75mm
3.  Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends
4.  Millinery wire – 1.5 yards
5.  Joiner to attach the ends of the millinery wire
6.  Pliers to secure the joiner

Abbreviations:

ch – chain
dc – double crochet
hdc – half double crochet
rem – remaining
sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
sp – space
st(s) – stitch(es)
YO – yarn over 

Gauge:

Approximately 19½ hdc sts and 13½ rows = 4”

Sizes:

Small: 22” (Medium: 23”, Large: 24”)

Pattern Notes:

  • Ch 1 at beginning of a round does not count as a single crochet or the first st.
  • Ch 3 at beginning of a round counts as double crochet.
  • Adding the Millinery Wire: Crochet over the wire just as if you were carrying yarn along the round.  Continue working over the wire until you are about 2-3 inches from the end of the round. At this point, try to gauge how much wire you will need to complete the round. Cut the wire and unravel a small portion of the rayon from the wire on each end exposing the silver. Insert each end of the wire into the joiner.  Use pliers to clamp the ends tight so they do not come out of the joiner. Finish crocheting the remainder of the hat as instructed. (You may not use the entire 1 ½ yards)

 Special Stitches:

Double crochet 2 stitches together (dc2tog): YO, insert your hook in indicated st, YO, pull up a loop, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, insert hook into next indicated st, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO, pull through remaining 3 loops.

Hey everybody! Shortly into our CALs we realized that our out-of-the-box blog comment system wouldn't let us reply to your comments.

We've since installed Disqus, above, which allows you guys to respond to each other and us to reply to your questions; seems like a no-brainer!

We will continue to display existing comments from the old comment system on all existing blog posts. All future commenting will be done through Disqus. Enjoy!
